Glad it helped!  Overall I like the program.  This one feature was a 
real pain for me at first.  I wanted to take the soundtrack to 
"Umbrellas of Cherbourg" with me to listen to and it includes the entire 
vocal track to the film, so I wanted it in order and was having a fit 
trying to add the tracks in order.  As I said, renaming them solved it.  
But if you add reading in FLAC tags and letting us sort, that's going to 
be just fantastic and I don't think any other players out there let you 
do it.

Just an interesting note.  When I had only one album loaded in and was 
trying to sort my tracks, I didn't see much to it, which was mainly 
because I couldn't do the one thing I needed.  Once I added a number of 
albums to the memory card, including a number of old radio shows and a 
lot of pics (I had just grabbed an SD card that had been in a camera), I 
was amazed at how easy it was to flip through albums, find what I 
needed, and play that album.  The same for photos.

Thanks for the hard work on it!
